The Freshman 50- Now on NOOK

Lots of GREAT news regarding The Freshman 50.

First, it's now available on BN.com.  It's published as a Barnes & Noble ebook (pubit).  It can be read on a Nook device or a Nook app.  As a Nook owner myself, I was thrilled to get my book on B&N!!!

TF50 (as I've lovingly begun to call it) is also on Facebook!  Like and become a fan for all the updates!

Now for a few FAQ:

1.  Can I read TF50 if I don't have a Kindle?
YES!  You can download a free Kindle application for all kinds of devices (PC, Apple, cell phones, etc.)  And now you can read it on a Nook, or any of the free Nook apps!

2.  When did you have time to write it?
I wrote it the summer after my freshman year.  I did a lot of the writing while I was babysitting and all the kids were asleep.

3.  Why did you write TF50?
It started as a simple list of things that I wished someone had told me before I left for Georgetown.  Once I had about 20 or 30 items, I realized that I should just write a book!

Last, but not least, an excerpt from a review by The Georgetown Voice:

This fall, Heitlinger expanded from blog posts to books with her self-published work, The Freshman 50. The book—which is available as an e-book—is composed of various anecdotes and pieces of advice for incoming college freshman told by the Carrie Bradshaw-esque big sister you never had. The lessons range from dorm life to hookups, and delve into academics with advice for coping with a challenging college curriculum. Others caution against unfortunate freshman faux-pas, like being the creepy guy who friends the entire class on Facebook before setting foot on campus.

I've had great feedback from you guys- THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
